The Scarlet Ibis

Could "The Scarlet Ibis" be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children (and other people) with disabilities? Why or why not? Could it help someone who has a family member with a disability? Why or why not?

This story can help raise awareness and sensitivity for disabled children because it can teach kids who have disabled siblings to just not push them too hard. It can help someone who has a disabled family member because at least they would be able to talk otherwise it would be horrible.

the scarlet ibis could be used to raise awareness and sensitivity towards children with disabilities because people will be more aware of this and will start to help and think more deeply into curing and helping these kids. it could help someone who has a family member with a disability because that person would be able to take into the fact that their family member is a human being too.

The story could help children and people with disabiliteies because it is a story about a disabled child who wasn't suppose to live because of his dicibilitie but did.this could help someone with a disabled family member because it teaches ou what to and not to do.

Yes "The Scarlet Ibis" be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because it can encourage them to overcome an obstacle that they have. Yes it could help someone who has a family member with a disability because then they will know that they shouldn't be embarrassed about them and never try to push them too hard.

1.yes, because they will think that u can't rush helping someone who has a disability.
2.well in the idea that the narriator helped out doodle to teach him how to walk could give a idea for someone who has a family member who is disabled.

yes it can raise awareness because there may be people out there like that and it can help family members too but you have to have faith in them

I so think that this story could be used to help and raise money for children with disabilities because there are lots of people who think this is sad and want to help from other kids dying. It could also help someone with a family member with a disability because they wont want that family member either to dies or suffer and they would want to prevent that so if someone is being mean to someone disabled then this may open their eyes. They might now see oh this person may or may not be close to death but if your mean open those eyes and be nice. Not pitty nice but nice because you want to be nice.

The scarlet ibis can be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because it explains that people with disabilities can practically do the same things other people can do. But they have to be watched because they can get hurt. Like in the story the big brother pushes Doodle to walk and run. Doodle listens to his brother to learn because he wants his brother to be proud of him. At the end doodles brother stops watching Doodle and he dies.



The story also helps a person with a family member that has a disability because it shows them that they should not push their family member to do something they can't and should appreciate the time they have with them. If a disabled person gets pushed to do something they can't they might get hurt.

Coby said...

I think The Scarlet Ibis could be used to raise awareness and sensitivity to children, as this story touches the heart and makes you realize what it is like to be a child with a disabled brother. However, I don't believe it would help someone who has a family member with a disability. "Doodle" did nothing wrong. It was mostly his older brother's fault for him dying. Just saying! :)

Yes i think that the scarlet could raise awareness to people or children with disability's. Because they if you want to teach them a lot of physical things then you have to take it with a passe that they feel comfortable with. It could help family members as well because they will learn how to pay much more attention with them and not force anything upon them.

Yes, The Scarlet Ibis could be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because it would show people how difficult it is to have a disability and how they can do things and get better but there are limits.

Yes, the story would help someone who has a family member because it shows how everyone in the family feels and maybe it will help to start talking about their feelings.

Yes, i think it could raise awareness to people with disabilities, because something like that could happen to them to, and it is very sad.It relates alot, because alot of kids do not know how to walk.

" The Scarlet Ibis" can be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because this sad story can teach brothers or sisters to appreciate that they have them alive and with them. This can help a family member with a disability because that person can see the love that people have for him even of he/she has a disability. Pride can sometimes beat love but not always.

The Scarlet Ibis could be used to raise awareness sensitivity towards children because a young child dies of his didability, and thats unfortuante. It can help raise awareness because people who care and have a heart know why this is sad and horrible.
This story can help someonewho has a family member with a disability because it can help them not be selfish and embarassed of a family members disability.

Anonymous said...

I think that "The Scarlet Ibis" can help families with a member with a disability, so that they know not to push them to do something they can't. They will realize that it's more important to accept the member for who they are, not something you want them to be. It can also help children with disabilities to let them know that it's okay to be disabillitated. If someone tries to push them to do something they can't, they might know the outcome of what'll happen.

I think the "Scarlet Ibis" can be be used to raise awareness to people with disabilities and children because the story showed how much Doodle believed in himself and his brother. Doodle had many problems and was denied that he could learn anything, but he loved his brother so much, he almost forced himself to learn. He ended up walking and i believe that is an inspiration and a miracle! (Even though Doodle died and the story is fiction.)
I believe it would help someone who has a family member with a disability because they would be able to relate to the story well.

krystianne garcia said...

well i think it could possibly be used to raise awareness of children with disabilities. It could be used because it shows that sometimes people or children with disabilities sometimes are stressed because they feel the need to be normal and sometimes the stress over power them and they can get sick.
It can help someone with a family member who has a disability. It can help them because it show that you shouldn't be embarrassed of them. I have a cousin who has mental disabilities and people stare at him and it bothers me because he's just like anyone else he is no different then me or some random stranger.

Joses Galdamez said...

I think "The Scarlet Ibis" will in some way raise awareness of people with disabilities , but maybe to those who treat these people with disrespect. Those who do these such things might start to feel bad about what they did or what there doing, causing them to stop and help them to cooperate in this world as regular people. If the family puts them in this kind of effort, then it can help those who are a part of a family that is disabled.

Brianna said...

I think yes and no.
I don't know if that story would raise awarness to kids with a disability. But, parents and brothers and sisters probably thought about kids who do have do have an autistic problem.
My brother is autistic, and when I finished story, I deffinitly thouught of him. So, yes, in away it could raise awareness to kids such as my brother.

Joshua said...

I think that "The Scarlet Ibis" could be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children because many children can relate to having a younger brother or sister, and it teaches them to be thankful for what they have as a family and to not try to change anything about it

I think that it can help famliys with children that have disabilaties because there might think that if we treat our son/daughter or sister/brother like that and they die to?

The sacrlet ibis will raise awarness to not be mean to others with disabilities because it shows how they have chalenges to do normal things and pressure from family members to learn something to be normal. The story will help someone with a family member who has a disability to understand that they have thier own challenges and pressure to to do things, and that they should be proud of what they acomplish not emberrased.

In my opinion i do not really think that it would help spread awareness because most people do not like to read so some people would not take the time to read but as far as it goes for sensitivity i think it would make anyone who reads this story or anyone who has heard of this story gets a little sensitive only could blooded people would not feel bad. Well this story could help someone with a family member by touching them in a way that makes them feel that they should help with a disabled family member.

aerisfan777 said...

Yes, this story could be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because it shows that even though children with disabilities can learn to do some of the things that an average person can do, it is not good to push them too far because that can hurt them physically and/or emotionally and they are not capable of doing everything the average person can. I think it that this story could help someone who has a family member with a disability because if they don't know it already, reading this story would help them understand that they shouldn't push them too far and that they should just accept the way they are because people with disabilities love their family the way they are, so their family should love them the way they are too.

Yes, I think that "The Scarlet Ibis" could be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because it shows how sympathetic you could feel for people who have deal with those kind of lives.
Yes, this could help someone who has a family member who is disabled because they will learn that you shouldn't be ashamed of that person. you also shouldn't push them to be the way you want them to because in the story we learned that it could become serious.

I don't think the scarlet ibis would just relate to disabled people, It can relate to all weak people in the world. It relates to them because the scarlet ibis was really weak and was far away from home, when weak people "not just disabled" are far away from their "safe zone" they can fail to succeed in things, Doodle couldn't run that fast to get out of the storm and survive.

JordanO said...

I think that this story can help to raise sensativity to a disabled family member or friend. I think that this story can raise sensativity twards anyone who is disabled because you should try not to push anyone to hard. You should keep in mind the disability. You should also try love them the way that they already are, and ocasionally try to teach them new things without pushing them to hard. This story could help someone who has a friend or sibling with a disability. It shows how you should try to treat anyone disabled the same as anybody else.

Yes the "The Scarlet Ibis" would help awareness to children and people because it will show people and kids without disabilities to give respect to people and their disabilities.
Yes it helps family members with disabilities that they are part of the community and even if they are disabled they can still do whatever
ordinary person can do.

I think the lesson is for us is not to push disabled kids to the limit because you will never know what will happen. If they are disabled just let them be don't be embaressed don't be ashamed be glad that you just have a brother or sister.

I think that the Scarlet Ibis can raise awareness towards people with disablilities, because this story teaches a good lesson of not being selfish but to put others before yourself.Also to be understanding towards people with disablities.It can help a person with a family who has a disablility because it teaches them to be patient, as for me the story was relatable because my brother has tourettes.

Question 2. Again i think that it could help a family member with a disability because it inspires you and encourage you to do better

I think that the "The Scarlet Ibis" could be used to help raise awareness and sensitivity toward children (and other people) with disabilities by teaching people that,when someone say's stop! you have to listen to them because they fill like if they reached their Maximum reaching point and that they cant go no longer! Also you have to remember and be ware of what you can cause to the person if you dont listen and take consideration of their unfortunate special needs. Yes,it could help someone who has a family member with a disability byteaching them to be care and be a ware when their son or daughter or a family member has disability's.

I think it can help raise sensitivity and awareness towards children with disabilities because in the story "The Scarlet Ibis", Doodle has a disability that impairs his walking abilities as well as his mental abilities. In this story Doodle goes through a lot of hardships, and in the end he unfortunately ends up dying. This can really help someone with a family member that has a disability because it can bring awareness on how one is to treat them, not to push them too far, and to always be understanding and cooperative.

I believe the scarlet Ibis couldbe used to raise awareness for childeren with disabilities because it is so inspirational and touching, also i think childeren with disabilities will relate easily. It could perhaps help a perdon with a disabled child because after reading this thy would understand that they need to accept their child's disability and not let it get in the way of the love the two share.

For some reasons, it may help some people with disabilities but for some people it may not. Some people might push them to far like in the "Scarlet Ibis" and might actually end up hurting the one they love or worse.
It is the same thing for someone with a disability in your family, you feel bad for them because they cannot do the things that you can do. So you push them to achieve those goals, but sometimes you can push them to far and hurt them when your just trying to help them. So no it cannot help them.

It could raise awareness because we all know that everyone in this world is not perfect.
Yes, because it could relate to all of the people that do have disabilities. People with disabilities are the same as everyone else, they just have special needs.

I would think "The Scarlet Ibis" would help awareness and sensitivity toward children with disabilities because they would see that's how they are made and you shouldn't change it.

I think this story could be used to raise awareness about people with disabilities because even though they do have disabilities, this story is telling people that you shouldn't take the time you have with them for granted. You should love them for who and/or what they are. I think this story would be a good lesson for families who have a disabled family member because it is teaching them to accept those disabled members as they are and not to be ashamed by them. By doing this I think that that family member would feel loved and not like a dissapointment.

hi it is julio period 4, The Scarlet libisdoes help raise kids with a disability, well i guess so because it helps them find potential and care for a child to think possative for them and themselves.

Yes, it would be able to change somebody because of the fact of Doodle. He had a disability physically and mentally. His brother pushed him too far that he died.

No, because it might worry their family of what might happen to him.

I think scarlet ibis is a good way to help out those in need of disabilities. Because it shows that we need to respect them and love them the way they are because they are a person like us . Its also shows to not pressure them and not put so much stress in them and to care for them .

i think if a brother or a sister that have a relative that is disabled would think twice after they read Scarlet Ibis because the brother of Doodle was embarrassed of him. at the end of the story Doodle dies and i think that the people that were embarrassed will think again.

Yes it can help with family members with disabilities because if you have a family member with a disability, and you don't know how to act or communicate with them, this story may help you.

KISSkatieKILLER said...

Yes i think it could of helped kids with familys who have disablitlies. It shows to not take everything for granted and to treasure your family, not underestimate them and portray them to be less then others, just because they are different, and if you do decide to be cruel to them thats undescribale because you don't know how longgg they have untill they may die. (assuming the disability they have)!

1. Yes, because people will know that people that their friend or children have a disability, and you want them to b e regular, but the thing is that they also have a limit. Unlike people without a disability.
2. It can help someone in my family with a disability because they know that they could do the same activities like regular but probably not at the same pace.

I think this story can help alot of families with these disabilities because this story talks about how one brother was discoureged by the other brother who could not walk so he tried to help his brother by teaching him how to walk and gets greedy and wants to teach him something the disabled brother cant do.

kenny said...

yes it could because children with disabilities should be treated like any regular child but shouldn't be pushed to far. people without a disability in a family should also know how to treat a person even though they don't know them.

This story can help raise awareness and sensitivity for disabled children beause it doesnt matter if your disabled or not because you should always treat a person the way you would want to be treated. This also shows that someone with special needs could do the same things other people can do.

The story also hepls a family member because it teaches them a lesson.They should not push them too hard they should just love theyre son or daughter for who they are and especially never be ashamed of them.
